Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP)

Do you need some support at home with everyday tasks?

We understand as you get older, some tasks can become more challenging.

We support your independence to stay at home and live your life your way.

What is CHSP?

Commonwealth Home Support Program is a government funded program that supports older people who are still managing well at home, but would like some extra assistance. Many people use CHSP when they need low-level support. Services are prescribed by a Regional Assessment Service (RAS).

Visit the Department of Health website for more information.

What can CHSP be used for?

You can use CHSP funds to pay for a range of  services including help around the house, transport, meals, personal care, social support, nursing and more.

Do you have to pay for a CHSP?

The Australian government fund a large percentage of aged care services in Australia, through providing funding to organisations such as UCWB through grant agreements, allowing us to provide subsidised services to our customers.
